THE GUTTER

If you mention “the gutter” many people will assume you are talking about the UK MSM, or the UK political elites, or terrorists groups or some other suchlike lowlifes.

In the instance of mentioning “the gutter” here, there is an interesting Biblical point of reference.

The City Of David Excavations site bring out some very interesting, enlightening videos showing the latest developments at the site.

In the video below, at 5.40 minutes on the timeline, they show an ancient underground water pipe, which they reckon is the very same route which Joab used to covertly enter the city and conquer it.

It is mentioned in 2 Samuel 5:7 Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.
8 And David said on that day, Whosoever getteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, that are hated of David’s soul, he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.
